the Heat really going after Embiid today.  Rough doubles, fouling him rough...a big battle.

I don't like how often Embiid faces up for dribble drives.  Forces the issue a lot. 

7 first quarter TOs by Philly too.  Simmons looks good tho.

Dirty move by Covington there. Blatant two hand push by Covington on Dragic after the whistle.

Uh, Covington really didn't get anything for shoving Dragic after the whistle on a dead ball?

EDIT: Nevermind, I thought the other T was on Simmons, not Covington.

Am I the only one wishing KG was in this Heat Sixers series?

Sixers should be happy.  17 TOs and only down by 5 at the half.

Whiteside finally decided to show up in the playoffs.

Do you have any links to those stories?  I haven't heard anyone really say anyone but Clev and Toronto. 

Seeing that Clev is down 2-1 and another road game that could push them to 3-1.  Toronto looked mortal again on the road at Washington.  Philly is currently down to Miami.  If they lose and go to 2-2 with the heat, I don't know how anyone could really say there is a big fav at this point.

Ilyasova is making a big contribution for Philly.  Seems like he is in the right place / right time a lot.

Well there's your problem lol

By the way, does anyone else despise that Lebron D-riding Nick Wright from Fox Sports as much as I do? Dude is unbearable with his infatuation with Lebron, and he's still riding the Cavs despite how terrible they've been.  ::)

How many turnovers does this Heat team have to have off of errant lobs before they stop throwing them?

It is almost like they don't remember Embiid is there?
